*_Special Session_: Challenges in Modeling and Representation of 
Gestures in Human Interactions*

*IEEE FG2020 **@ Buenos Aires, Argentina*

*FG 2020 Call for Papers  - Deadline: 10 January 2020!!*

We cordially invite you to submit your work at our special session, 
"Challenges in Modeling and Representation of Gestures in Human 
to be held in conjunction with IEEE International Conference on 
Automatic Face and Gesture Recognition (FG 2020 - May 18-22, 2020). The 
accepted papers will be published in the proceedings of the main conference.

This special session will focus on fundamental challenges related to how 
to model and represent gestures. Understanding the pragmatical, 
semantical and morphological attributes of gestures could lead to novel 
approaches to tackle standard gesture recognition problems. Some 
approaches that tackle these problems include paradigms such as 
zero-shot and representation learning to recognize the semantic or 
high-level characteristics of gestures.

The challenges to be tackled in this special session include, but are 
not limited to:

  * Approaches to represent the gestures’ morphology (shape, movement)
  * Machine learning techniques to learn from a few gestures (zero-shot
    or few-shot learning)
  * Cognitive aspects of gestures (e.g. gestures as enablers of
    understanding and learning)
  * Affective properties of gestures (can hand gestures convey emotions
    in a similar way to action units?)
  * Approaches to represent the gestures’ semantics (the meaning of the
  * Representing gesture pragmatics (the context in which they were
